The most challenging part of organizing a vacation to South Africa is determining where to stay in South Africa. There are so many great locations to stay in South Africa that managing your itinerary and figuring out where to stay might be tiring. That is why we have listed the best places you could stay in South Africa. Let's get started.

1. Orange Grove Farm, Robertson

Since Robertson is a lesser-known wine area near Cape Town, pricing is cheaper. Orange Grove Farm is an excellent deal for the high quality and remote location at the foot of jagged mountains surrounded by vineyards and olive orchards.

The big cottages are spread out for seclusion, making it a true getaway experience. Mosesberg Cottage, one of the cottages, boasts high ceilings, an oversized soft couch, armchairs, a fireplace, a well-equipped kitchen, and a braai (barbecue). Gourmet braai and brunch baskets may be delivered right to your cottage. Orange Grove is great for peace and leisure, and vineyards are nearby.

2. La Providence, Franschhoek

La Providence is a tiny boutique guesthouse on a wine vineyard that is only a 15-minute walk from Franschhoek village, yet is set in the peaceful countryside surrounded by the Rocky Mountains. The scenic valley is excellent for winery hopping on the wine tram.

After a day of wine tasting, you may return to La Providence and relax on a comfy sun lounger by the gorgeous infinity pool with views of the mountains and vines. There is a self-service bar if you need extra drinks. A delicious breakfast is served by the pool as well.

3. The Edge Mountain Retreat, Hogsback

Hogsback is an Eastern Cape bohemian community where you may explore fairy gardens, wander through enchanting woodland to waterfalls, meditate around a labyrinth, and heal yourself with crystals. The mountain panorama is stunning, and bungalows on the edge of a cliff are the finest spot to soak it all in.

The enormous Edge rondavel provides excellent views from the room and terrace, a comfy bed, a large dining table, a small kitchen, and armchairs near the fireplace.

It's a beautiful serene environment with a restaurant, labyrinth, gardens, easy trek access, and a variety of bungalows to suit all budgets.

4. Inkosana Lodge, Drakensberg

The Drakensberg Mountains are a must-see in South Africa, especially for hikers. Inkosana Lodge is ideally positioned about 7 kilometers from the Monks Cowl entry, where many trails begin, and the proprietor may provide route recommendations. The stunning setting amid lush gardens with a natural swimming pool and mountain vistas is what makes Inkosana unique.
